Despite what you’ve heard, Microsoft has no plans of releasing a portable Xbox 360 console. The company has gone on record to state the future of Xbox gaming on-the-go begins and ends with Windows Phone. At Nokia Connection 2011 an unnamed MeeGo device is expected to headline the show. The odds on favorite is the Nokia N9.
Clove has no plans to stock the Motorola Milestone 3. Rumors are now circulating suggesting the third generation Milestone, known as the Droid 3 in the states, will remain a stateside-only affair. Apple has responded to Samsung’s request to see the iPhone 5 and iPad 3. The request was denied on the basis that Apple’s claims against Samsung only pertain to current products, not upcoming releases.

Regardless of how you feel about Symbian, these sensors are impressive. That wraps up the latest and greatest in the wild world of tech news. As always I’m Nick Marshall and I’ll see you again tomorrow.
